Maybe this has been suggested before, but...

Probably more C++ abi changes will follow. To support a
smooth migration I would like to suggest to create empty
packages describing the C++ abis.

A package maintainer could add the C++ abi package to the
dependency list. When a new C++ abi gets introduced, and
the first packages with a dependency to the new abi package
appear, then these packages are automagically put on hold
till all packages in the whole dependency chain have been

Surely the package name or the version number are the wrong
place to describe the C++ abi.

Just an idea. Regards
